Lightened Up Peach and Blueberry Cobbler #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

I am so excited for today’s recipe.  I made this two weeks ago, and patiently waited to share it with you.  Today for #SundaySupper we had to make a dish that we would use local ingredients or finds from the Farmers Market.  I am always at the Farmers Market so today’s mission was easy!  But then again, with all the wonderful produce, meats, fish and breads, it can be normally hard, but not for me today.  I had this idea in my head since m Boss’s BBQ a few weeks ago.  My Boss’s wife made a wonderful peach cobbler and I couldn’t get it out of my mind.  I needed some peach cobbler in my life, so that weekend, at 5am on Sunday morning I made this most wonderful treat!  I am so loving it!!

Lightened Up Peach and Blueberry Cobbler

This is my Lightened Up Peach and Blueberry Cobbler!  Oh baby is this ever good!  I had to control myself by not eating the whole batch!  I love it and I used all local ingredients including the sweet honey.  The cobbler is sweet, fresh and is so perfect with vanilla bean ice cream.  Yum!!  I don’t know what it is, but I am on a major peach kick.  I normally not big on eating peaches, but there is something about them this year.  They are sooooooo sweet, you barely need any sugar with it!  Sigh….  I think I heart peaches!!!

For the topping, I made a cobbler topping that is pretty light.  I didn’t want anything to bready, as much as I like bread, I just wanted fruit!  The topping is made with whole wheat pastry flour, a pinch of sugar, Smart Balance Margarine and coconut milk.  You can also make this dish vegan by using Earth Balance! ;)  Most cobbler recipes ask for whole milk or cream, but I opted on using coconut milk because it is pretty creamy and thicker that non-fat milk.  It worked out like a charm.

For the fruit, I used 2 tablespoons of local honey, that tastes amazing, a pinch of stevia and cornstarch.  I found my peaches pretty sweet, so I didn’t want to add to much sugar to them.  For the topping, I made my batter and then poured it over my fruit and spread it with the back of my spoon.  Here it is before putting it in the oven.

Here it is fresh out of the oven.  I swear my eyes just about burst when I saw it.  I am so proud of this cobbler.  It’s the best one I have ever made and I have made cobbler before, but with my substitutions, it came together beautifully, plus it’s low on calories.  It comes in at only 149 calories!  That’s pretty good!  Normal cobbler is around 300 – 400 calories if not more!  If you just want to eat a serving of the fruit and skip the topping, you’re looking at 66 calories!  I sometimes take the top off when I put it in my yogurt.  Yes, I put this cobbler on my yogurt and ice cream.  It’s so good in yogurt, dam now I want some!!

Ohhh I am excited to see what local finds everyone has.  It’s so wonderful to explore other areas and see what they specialize in.  Whenever I travel anywhere, I always scope out what is local there.  You know local goods are always the best!!  Then I stock up if I can and bring it home!!

Well my Friends, I am off to do some more cooking.  I am on a roll today!

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

Toodles,

Jennifer

  1. This is indeed a keeper recipe, Jennifer. I appreciate the very low content of honey (which I imagine enhances the peaches perfectly.) Love whole wheat pastry flour in the crumble, too. It always add such a nice, nutty texture..Congratulations on this fabulous creation, Jennifer!

  10. This sounds wonderful. We generally don’t eat desserts, but we do eat snacks with Greek yogurt and fruit. These peaches sound perfect. For those who have not yet discovered Greek yogurt with fruit, it’s a wonderful snack.

  15. Any kind of cobbler is comfort food. Warm, sweet peaches and blueberries with a lovely topping like yours would be perfect with a little ice cream. Or heavy cream. At our house, we tend to put lashings of heavy pouring cream on everything. I love the way you’ve lightened things up, Jennifer, but still made it delicious.
